Larger than Life

Macro photography is my obsession. There is a whole new world available when you look closely enough. I love how the most ordinary becomes extraordinary and the hidden is made visible when seen larger than life.  These photos were all taken around my home. Things I walk past every single day made me stop in awe when seen in a new light. Enjoy.

Joy and Peace inside Sadness and Chaos

Finding time to post not to mention photograph these last few weeks have been exceptionally difficult.

There have been two quick trips back to back, the relapse of my elderly dog who thankfully looks to be back on track and the sudden wonderful busyness in my professional life… BUT as a solo act this means I am the only one doing all the work. The actual photography I love, of course!  The business side… not so much.   Accompanying the wonderful uptick in business has been a month of hard learned lessons. Lessons I didn’t want to learn…reminders of how, no matter how much we want to trust humankind, everyone does not want the best for you… This kind of realization is particularly hard hitting for someone scoring off the charts as an empath.  To further complicate things I am simultaneously in the midst of re-doing my web site. I think it will be wonderful when complete and hope to stay sane until it is!

So – I have missed a few weeks of sharing with you here… but did manage to capture a moment that truly made me smile and one that brought a feeling of peace.  I share those with you today in the hopes that they will do the same for you.
